name being Ap Adam which was exchanged for -^darn's son about the year 
1450 and gradually became the present name. 

Henry ^dams, the youngest son of an En-.lish 3aron came from 
Braintree in Essex County, England in 1634 and settled in Brain'ree

and had a son Joseph who m. Hannah Bass. The latter had a son 
Ebenezer who m. Ann Boylston and their 5th child and 4th son was 
as follows;) 

ZABDIEL ADAMS 

Was b. in Braintree now Q,uincy 5 Novl739. He was a double 
cousin of -President John A. their fathers being brothers and their 
mothers, sisters. He grad. at Harv. Coll. 1759 studied his pro- 
fession at Cambridge; was ad. to f.c.10 July 1764, from 1st church 
in Braintree and was ordained as the Minister of this town 5 Sept. 
1764 as the successor of his father-in-law, Rev. David Stearns. 
He m. 5 June 1765 (TH) Elizabeth Steams (134 S.) b. 20 Apr. 1742. 
He was a trustee of Lawrence academy, ^roton, 1793 to 180l. He was 
a good writer and was noted for his impressive and animated delivery. 
Many of his sermons delivered on public occasions were printed. A 
full account of Mr. Adams will be found in my History of the town. 
He lived where John F. Brown now lives (117). He continued to be 
the Minister of the town until he d. 1 Mar. 1801, 61,3,24.(3) 
The town erected a tablet to his memory on which is the following 
inscription: 

"This Monument is erected by the town of Lunenburg as a 
tribute of affectionate respect to the memory of their deceased 
Pastor, the Reverend Zabdiel Adams, who died, universally esteemed 
and respected, March 1, 1801, in the 62 year of his age and 37 of 
his Ministry. An active and capacious mind, nurtured by a public 
education, rendered him an acceptable, instructive and useful 
Minister. The asperities of his constitution were softened by the 
refining influence of Religion. With a heart, and understanding 
formed for social life he seldom failed to interest and improve 
all who enjoyed his communications. In his Ministerial performances 
a ready utterance, commanding eloquence, and elevated sentiments 
made him engaging and profitab" e. A Catholic belief of the Gaspel, 
a respect and love of the Saviour, and a confidence in the faithful- 
ness of God, disarmed -^eath of its terrors and inspired a rational 
and certain hope of a glorious resurrection. He was a bright and 
shining light and we rejoiced for a season in his light t " 

She d. 16 Aug. 1800, 58,3,27 (S) Inscription on hef g-s: 
"She venerated her God and attended the public worship as long 
as she was able. Hospitality, economy, and diligence were the 
leading features of her character. She left a husband and nine 
children to lament her loss and is gone to that world from whose 
bourn no traveller will return."

Go where to love and to enjoy are one."

*************** 

Note: I regret the very imperfect account of many of the families 
scattered through these volumes but if I wait until all are 
complete I shall never copy them. Years hence, when almost every 
Family Name shall have its historian and very many of these family 
Histories shall be published and found in every Public Library 
persons will be found who will wonder at the incompleteness, the 
imperfections and the inaccuracies found in these and other 
man uscript volumes. We are the pioneers in the work and those who 
come after us will find their labors the lighter for what we 
have done in the way of preparing the ground for them to improve and 
perfect.)

of the Revolution he was appointed to superintend the drafting of men 
for the army from this district, He was -Lieutenant Colonel in his 
brother Benjamin's Regiment and he was out in Shay's Rebellion. 
The prominent traits of his character v;ere refined and elevated 
feelings ; a religious sentiment; generosity in excess, and a warm 
sympathy with the distressed. These, united with extreme nervous 
sensibility so involved him with every one who asked his assistance 
that he suffered a considerable pecuniary loss which led to 
anxiety about the support of his family and induced a mental 
derangement that continued during the last thirty years of his life.

minded, having her "affections set on things above." In her 
appointed sphere she steadfastly and faithfully served her 
Divine Lord", developing a character remarkable for its 
mellowed, chastened tone, its uniformly devout, heavenly 
spirit, and its faithfulness in all the Christian graces ;- 
in a word, for its beautiful symmetry, -rather than for the 
singular prominence of any particular virtue:- the constant, even 
tenor of a good life, -^nd her peaceful end, eo full of comfort 
and of hope, was but the befitting termination of a life 
of sweet; serenity and trust in God, so beautifully portrayed 
in that favorite Psalm of hers(the twenty-third.) which had 
been as the light; of Heaven to her during her pilgrimage, and 
for which she caULed for her consolation and support, as she 
was nearing the entrance into the dark valley. Her unostenta- 
tious, consistent life, day by day, as it was the highest 
possible evidence of her Christian character and excellence, 
so is it, also, the most precious memorial she could have 
left as an inestimable legacy to bereaved friends who mourn 
her loss- 3y it, she "being dead yet speaketh," and its 
testimony is both invaluable and imperishable. But few, in 
the quiet village where she passed the last years of her life, 
beyond her own immediate circle of loving friends, knew what 
a life of singular sweetness and beauty has fadec out from 
their midst." Ohil.:

the men whose services were purchased in Boston to fill the quota 
of men called for from this tovai. 3y a law of the otate passed 
during the Civil "ar ail men who enlisted to fill the quota of 
any town was "towned"" by doing so and a town became liable for his 
support or for the support of his family if he had one. The 
technical phrase is that a man enlisting "obtained a residence"

ing at the stake. This Book came into Mr. barter's possession through 
his Grandmother-his mother's mother-who was a Rogers ana claimed 
to be a lineal descendant of the rurtyr. Hon. James ravage, seems 
to prove quite conclusively that the book "'as not printed till 1561 
or 6 years after the martyrdom of John Rogers (See N.E. Gen. Die. Vol. 3 Ra^

in a handkerchief and walking into -he city from Cambridge to save 
the cost of riding. He was employed after he had been in Boston 
some ti ;e by an apothecary under the Revere House in 0'owdoin Square 
at 3250. a year, working every day, Sundays included, from davligho 
to 11 or 12 o'dloek p.m. and sleeping in the store. Everybody 
liked him; and by the closest attention to business and the r.ost 
rigid economy he at length bought out his employer. Pie has gone 
on step by step enlarging his business purchasing other establish- 
ments of the same kind always busy always pleasant and always pros- 
perous until he is nov/ probably the richest man ever born in Lunenourgo

was some relationship or connection between these Chutes and ^apt. 
Paul Crocker (215 J'J which I cannot explain and after frequent 
inquires there, is still something of a mystery about the matter 
which has perplexed me not a little. On our records "Capt. Paxil 
Crocker and wife and the following chil." are warned in 1791. It 
then enumeratsa them as follows: "Mary, Anna ^rocker Chute, George 
Washington Crocker w hute. Paul ^rocker Chute" ^apt.Paul Crocker had 
a daughter Mary as will be seen. I have thought that possihlv he, 
Paul Crocker took the name, of ^hute but he had not done so at the 
time of his 2d marriage in 1796, 5 years after the warning. I 
cannot solve the mystery) He d. was lost at sea. She d. 5 ^ept.

about him that was not right; either he was a spendthrift or he

goodhearted Irishman, a great part of the bims in "not water" -with

discipline, but he minded it no more than the blowing of the wind, 
replving to its grave admonitions with a laush, or a .joke, or both.

(23-) JOHN DARUKG 

b. probably in Lynn or perhaps in Salem 1702 a descendant 

of George Darling of Lynn in 1650 m. I find no evidence 

in any way that his wife ever lived here, but the truth may be that 
she d. before his coming here, and that he came here and livea with 
one of his sons. I do not find that he was ever taxed here. My 
account of the different families of this name is quite imperfect, 
and unsatisfactory. I believe it is the only case of so many families 

of the same name, that I could not tell where some of them lived.
